DOJ Says It Found ‘Possible Method’ To Unlock iPhone

The Department of Justice has just asked the courts to vacate the hearing set for tomorrow with Apple over the unlocking of that iPhone used by one of the suspects in San Bernardino shooting. It would seem the feds have found another way to unlock the iPhone.

On Sunday, March 20, 2016, an outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possiblemethod for unlocking Farook's iPhone. Testing is required to determine whether it is available method that will not compromise data on Farook's iPhone. If the method is viable, it should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple Inc. ("Apple") set forthin the All Writs Act Order in this case.
